    Stunning location in the heart of the lake district. Very peaceful. Ideal for walkers and families. Fellow guests seemed to call it a night at a reasonable hour so had a good night's sleep. No WiFi in the rooms. Would definitely stay here again.

    Lovely setting. Great staff. Friendly bar. Stayed in a pod for 3 night which was great - warm and cosy even in sub zero temperature. Clean facilities. Good breakfast. Could go on forever - just see for yourself.More
